The Good President Barack Obama was rightly elected by the American people.
---Eloy on 10/21/09


interesting views mixed with racist language and all..... that just tells me that Christians or not.... we still have our sore spots..... its good to know.... cos it will help us to know the progress as God continues to work in our hearts to accept each other.... it is especially sore for blacks because we've been treated badly over the years by the white brethren and sisteren.... the picture seems to be.

But Jerry, what do you aim at accomplishing with such a post?Is He the worst? or should we watch our steps? I will advise we drop this topic because it is only breeding poison here..
---patie3447 on 10/15/09


StrongAxe ... My question was really addressed to Viet Nam Veteran, because he did seem to think it was the president who had posted, for he said:

"Barack--
It's well known you don't think much of the military. Of course, YOU have never worn the uniform. ....YOU haven't started each day wondering if it would be your last and worried about a young pregnant wife half a world away. YOU haven't gone after a buddy under fire and dragged him to safety,.... You begrudge us the one promise from our government that we count on most? And you are our commander-in chief?"

No one is more surprised than me.

If you look at the people who agree with scripture I post you'll find me minoritized even greater than you could ever imagine.
Very comfortable...just sad it's so.
While I just point....looking is just not very vogue these days.
Looking for more than one biblical witness is unheard of here or in most Churches on any topic.
The witnesses might.....be true! How scary. Would entail having relearn/unlearn/be Saul-humble.

alan8566_of_uk:

Of course I don't for a minute believe that the President is posting on this blog. However, I generally give people the courtesy of calling them by whatever name they choose to be called (unlike some here who change people's names, and sometimes in derogatory ways, when they disagree with them).

Glenn:

"Birther" is the term that other people use to describe those who insist that Barack Obama is not a natural-born US citizen, in much the same way that "Christian" was the term that others used to describe followers of Jesus (first in Antioch (Acts 11:26), then elsewhere).
---StrongAxe on 10/15/09


Trav...I would have never guessed that you were a minority.
---karenD on 10/14/09


StrongAxe and VietNamVeteran... Do you think that was really your President posting?

Does the real Barack think like that Barrack?
---alan8566_of_uk on 10/14/09


Is "birther" a deprecatory term, ...Jews call 'loshon hora', or the evil tongue. Telling lies, presenting rumours for evidence, or violations of Matthew 7:1-5 are not permitted in Christianity.
---Glenn on 10/13/09

Then why do you and the other birthers do it. The "conservative" side has shown itself to be particularly good at this.

It's a good term, defining a group of people who believe that the president was not born in this country and there not eligible to be president. There has been no FACTUAL evidence presented to prove he's not.

Barrack_Obama:

There are two things you forget:
1) Recently, with voluntary service, there is an implied contract between servicemen (and women) and goverment: servicemen place life and limb at risk for country, and in exchange, government takes care of health care for life. Suddenly changing the rules abrogates government responsibility under this contract.
2) In earlier wars (like Vietnam), most did NOT serve voluntarily, and were forced into the above contract, which if broken, would add insult to injury (literally). How would you like to be a 60 year old retiree with no legs (blown off by a mine while you were forced to go to Vietnam) being told you now use your social security to pay for health insurance instead of eat?

Barack--
It's well known you don't think much of the military. Of course, YOU have never worn the uniform. YOU haven't started each day wondering if it would be your last and worried about a young pregnant wife half a world away. YOU haven't gone after a buddy under fire and dragged him to safety, only to realize you've left his legs behind or tried to comfort the best friend you know is dying. We do this so that war may NOT come to OUR shores, OUR country!
Our pay is a lot less than civilians, but we pay taxes,too!
One promise they've ALWAYS made was that they'd take care of us and our families if the unthinkable happened. You begrudge us the one promise from our government that we count on most? And you are our commander-in chief?
---Viet_Nam_Veteran on 10/13/09


Here is what I got to say to all of those uncooperative soldiers who didn't want to buy their own health insurance,
"Look, it's an all volunteer force. Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute."

"I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country. I wasn't asking for blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."

Native Indians are special to me. They were unique. Have learned many things from and look for artifacts from this people.

Basically off center about ownership though.
GOD is owner. If a Christian you read scripture. In scripture GOD gave land to who he wanted. Enemies sometimes to punish. When Is ra el) was a proper wife....she was given any land she wanted. Abraham was given/promised compass points.
Land we live in is in scripture. Given to descendants of Israel....as promised.....whether you/we/I like what GOD done or not.

The_Friendly_Blogger:

You yourself quoted it: the person loses his American nationalization if he accepts nationalization in another country WITH THE INTENTION to give up his American citizenship. If he accepts another citizenship WITHOUT renouncing his American citizenship, however, he can keep both. Some countries (like the US) require you to relinquish former citizenships first while others don't. Making such an affirmation before a foreign judge normally has no standing in the US, but this law explicitly recognizes such renunciations.
---StrongAxe on 10/13/09


No. The presidency was a humongous mess before President Barak Obama took office. He inherited a gigantic deficit from the foregoing presidents operations that have gone on before him. He will not be able to clean this country up over night, but he should have the backing of the citizens in order to re-establish this countries fallen honor in the face of the other nations round about. This means lifting up the morals and standards that this country was founded upon, and thereby all the crime and violence and poverty which has been welcomed in this country will diminish, and the blessings from Christ can begin to flow once again. As I said before, we can choose to have a prison on every street corner, or else a church, the choice is ours.
---Eloy on 10/13/09


mike -- what was "arrogant" or "self-righteous" about my post? I gave my opinion about "worst" presidents like everyone else. I said nothing about native Americans. I agree that the WWII created jobs and made us a super-power, it also got us out of the great depression...not Roosevelt's economic policies, as some contend. Truman deserves credit for ending that war. He was a democrat and I admire him.

Carter did a good job with Israel and Egypt, but I lost Iran which HAD been progressive and peaceful. That's why I don't think he was a good president. Many presidents helped the less fortunate. Bush gave more help to Africa than any president. He got more accolades when he visited there, than did Pres. Obama.
---Donna66 on 10/12/09


I have read the blogs on this silly topic and it seems unreasonable and premature to decide the issue for a President who has served less than a year of a presidency that may lasts for eight years.

Probably more importantly however, is the coarse and unsound tone of most of the blogs. I am beginning to wonder how different would the blogs written by non-professing christians be.

i find your comments arrogant & self righteous.

FDR was elected 4x. he won WW2 but died on april 1945. the war made jobs & us became a superpower
carter helped the peace process bet. egypt & israel. as an ex-president he helped those who are less fortunate.

unlike your arrogant bush & other republican presidents, they are inactive just waiting for their retirement money.
and by the way, this land does not belong to the white people, originally the native americans owned this land.

human prejudice regarding intelligence, political party, race, sex, age ...more citizens have access to sounds and pictures and opinions of a president, the greater the chance of human prejudice...
*****

Interesting analysis except "issues" were PRESENT when Obama elected - it was NOT a "close" race

if citizens were plugged into media BEFORE election and muted the sounds of these "issues" then media is "turning up the sound" painting a different picture of him after election

however imagine this - ALL of these issues seemed a moot point BEFORE election so wonder WHICH side of racial "divide" is now hammering away and driving these points home AFTER election

---The_Friendly_Blogger on 10/12/09

Did you miss this little tidbit in your answer. IF Obama became an Indonesian citizen, (and I would like to see proof of that) I doubt he had any intention of relinquishing his nationality. Unless of course, you know something the rest of us dont..

Now, where in the code does it say you cant have dual citizenship?

Friendly: Try researching your thoughts before blogging them.

The U.S. does not take away any person's citizenship automatically upon becoming a citizen elsewhere. The person must request that their citizenship be dropped.

As for multiple citizenships, I know an entire family of missionaries, where the wife and children have citizenship in the U.S., France and other countries simultaneously, with dual passports.

Check your facts.
---Trish9863 on 10/11/09


When his citizenship changed to attend to Indecision the Muslim school [US does not recognized dual citizenship] and subsequently regained US Citizenship, he can no longer be classified as a native born US Citizen and would be constitutionally excluded from serving as the President of the United States of America.
---The_Friendly_Blogger on 10/11/09

Your logic is flawed. Even IF he became a citizen of Indonesia that doesn't change the fact he was a natural born citizen. And from the In the United States Citizenship and Immigration service (part of Homeland Security), "Dual citizenship is not explicitly prohibited, the United States has no laws or policies addressing this issue."

Good try though...

A little revision of history, Donna?

we have peace in the Middle East because of it. Never said that, Donna, you did. But then, tell me.. When was the last time shots were fired between Egypt and Israel?

As far as Iran. The gap between the rich and poor grew under the Shah's rule. The Shahs "security force" - SAVAK - tortured and killed hundreds, if not thousands. Yes, American hostages were taken, and I watched the news every night, wondering when they would be released but you can't blame Carter for that.

It was NOT Carters fault that Iran fell.
---NurseRobert on 10/11/09


Where Obama was born is really a secondary issue [Even with birth certificates from two different hospitals in Hawaii] The primary issue is that while he was living in Indochina with his father, his father enrolled him in a Muslim school that required Indonesian citizenship to attend. When his citizenship changed to attend to Indecision the Muslim school [US does not recognized dual citizenship] and subsequently regained US Citizenship, he can no longer be classified as a native born US Citizen and would be constitutionally excluded from serving as the President of the United States of America.
---The_Friendly_Blogger on 10/11/09


NurseRobert- Carter brokered peace between Israel and Egypt,and we have peace in the Middle East because of it. 'Fraid not, though it was a nice try. Yes, respect him for that.

BUT Carter lost Iran when he would not protect the shah, thus allowing Khomeini to return from exile and place Iran and it's people back in the Middle Ages. Iran had been a peaceful progressive nation, but no longer.
They had friendly relations with the US, but under Khomeini, American hostages were taken from the US Embassy,violating a long standing international law granting countries sovereignty in their own embassies. 53 Americans were held hostage for 444 days. Some feel we have Carter to thank for the Iran we have today.
---Donna66 on 10/11/09


There has not been true evidence presented of Mr. Obama's birth in the United States.

The courts, multiple times, have said otherwise. The state of Hawaii recognizes he was born there. Birthers will belive whatever they want, but the fact is, he is a natural born citizen of this cournty.

In fact thousands of dollars has been spent to prevent the citizenry from attaining this information. Any U.S. citizen has standing, and therefore, the right to see the proof of his citizenship.

Proof of this fact?? And they have showed you his birth certificate, you just refuse to believe it.

The 10th Amendment.... Multiple supreme court decisions have said otherwise.

Glenn: You must be living under a rock, or away from access to the media. Proof of Obama's citizenship has been made. The governor of Hawaii has stated that the birth certificate, which has been available on the Internet, is authentic.

Not sure what you want, but you are not going to get it. The powers that be in Washington accepted his citizenship, and it is a done deal.

Now, if you want to talk about election scams, we can discuss George W.'s first election and the coincidence that his brother was governor of Florida and the election fraud that occurred there with the hanging chads.

The principal reasons that a man would make a bad President are that he violates Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Matthew 22:36-40, Mark 12:28-33, and that he violates his oath of office to uphold the Constitution. There has not been true evidence presented of Mr. Obama's birth in the United States. In fact thousands of dollars has been spent to prevent the citizenry from attaining this information. Any U.S. citizen has standing, and therefore, the right to see the proof of his citizenship.

Jerry,

I knew you would appreciate the results of a good scientific study by professionals.

I do have my reservations however. Corrections for UCOBS factors as expressed in the data dimensions of weight, diameter, or VOC's, or a combination of those factors were not done, and that means sloppy work and unreliable conclusions.

Of course I have heard the same complaints made against much of the work by A.A. Snelling and other creation scientists. But if the results fits your personal belief---who cares?

My vote for worst American president is a tie, Andrew Johnson and Ulysses S. Grant.

Both did everything they could to botch up the Reconstruction, giving African-Americans no more liberty than they had under slavery. Their policies continued white supremacy in the South, making the civil liberty struggle of the 60's so difficult.

Their policies ultimately cost us 100 years of standstill in racial relations.

I believe it is too early to tell whether the situations in place as Obama came into office will be fixable. Luck, good and bad, enter into results. Also, human prejudice regarding intelligence, political party, race, sex, age, and more play a part, and the more citizens have access to sounds and pictures and opinions of a president, the greater the chance of human prejudice entering the outcome of opinion polls.

Of course not. Who said he was? He is

Hit the nail on the head.

Donna ... "Didn't we hear enough hatred spewed out when Bush was president?"

As an outsider from the UK, and as a mere observer, maybe I can answer that question better then many.

I would say that in these blogs, on this site, I saw more hatred spewed out agaisnt Obama in the first month of his Presidency that I saw in the whole of the 4 years of Mr Bush.

There was criticism, but no more than of Obama, but there were very few of these viscious personal attacks made against Bush

The Nobel Peace prize was awarded on the basis of his speeches. It never has to do with accomplishments. I think Jimmy Carter got one, too, and I can't think of anything worthwhie he achieved.

Until Obama, Carter was the worst president in my memory... and I remember back to Trumen. If I was a few years older, I might have said FDR was second worst.

I hate to see this question even come up. Didn't we hear enough hatred spewed out when Bush was president?

The question is mean and idiotic. A responsible question on an executive is at the conclusion of most or all of his term(s).
The last USAToday/Gallup poll in 2007 had Dubya near Nixonian levels of dissapproval and lower than Gerald Ford and even Jimmy Carter. Tussad's Wax museum routinely runs a poll on which Nixon scores most poorly.
Most presidents who fare poorly serve during times of great wars, and historians like Cluny who do their homework would probably point to Millard Fillmore, Herbert Hoover (blamed for the depression) and Grover Cleveland who sired an illegitimate child. His opponent created a slogan "Ma Ma where's my Pa?
Gone to the White House Ha Ha Ha!"

What if I were to say no, what would you say?

Ever hear of Millard Fillmore? At least he didn't resign under a cloud for abusing his office, or was impeached for lying about his sexual behavior under oath.

Obama's not been in office really long enough to accomplish much.

Yet, after less than 2 weeks in office, he was nominated for and WON the Nobel Peace Prize (nominations had to be placed by 1 February).

For what? What has he actually done?

No way. He is an inspiration to slackers everywhere. He has proven that you can rise to the top even though you have zero accomplishments.

He has shown that the world rewards intentions. Results (or lack of results) are irrelevant. Make promises instead of progress. Make speeches instead of decisions. Make nice instead of waves. You too can win a Nobel Prize simply by wishing for nice things.

The adulation of Obama makes me think of how every kid on every soccer team gets a trophy at the end of the year just for participating. Everyone's a winner. Brings a tear to the eye.

I cant say Obama is the worst Pres. What I hear etc so many that voted for him sure dont like some things that he's doing.
If he even tempts God(saying something stupid like, allah put me on the pres-seat) Jesus Christ The Almighty God will replace him.
Almighty God put him there on the Pres-seat to fulfill Bible prophecy.

No! Jimmy Carter holds that distinction.

Jerry,

Too early to determine the historical outcome of this question. However, using statistically verifiable and tested factors, Phee, Cole, and Bolis have just release a study that concludes the answer has a .987 probablity of being true.

Many factors were used, but the simplfied equation for the computation is ((O^2)*D)---

Where O = (TheOthernessFactor) ---this is a composite factor based on how "Other" the particular President is perceived to be in comparison to the perceived "WeNess" of the largest group using "We" most often to describe themselves and everyone else who thinks correctly as they do.

and

Where D = (DemonizationFactorForTimeInOffice)

No, George W. was so bad, it would take a really terrible president to qualify for worst.

Interesting that this question is posted on the day it is announced that Obama is being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
---Trish9863 on 10/9/09


Good grief! He didn't get us into endless war in Afghanistan and Iraq. He didn't cost thousands of American lives--the lives of men and women who should have been with their families! Y'all can thank Bush for that one! I do, however, wish Obama would keep his campaign promise to bring our boys home--soon hopefully.
---Mary on 10/9/09


NO!!!
I believe the worst president was Ronald Reagan.
I believe George W. Bush was the second worst president.
I believe Harry Truman was the greatest president.
And I believe Dwight D. Eisenhower was second best president.
It remains to be seen where Mr. Obama will land.
